Coronary Angiography

Coronary Angiography is commonly used to facilitate the procedure of diagnosing heart conditions; it is a test that uses dye and special x-ray to examine insides of your coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart. During the procedure, a long, thin and flexible tube called a catheter is inserted into a blood vessel in your groin or arm or neck. The tip of the Catheter is placed in the heart and coronary arteries, and dye is injected into the bloodstream. X-ray cine movie is taken while the dye is flowing through the coronary arteries. This clearly highlights any blood vessel that is narrow or blocked. This procedure is needed:

  • After a heart attack.
  • To help diagnose angina.
  • To plan interventional or surgical procedures.
  • Best method for diagnosing coronary heart disease.

The procedure commonly carried out under local anaesthetic, so you will be awake while the procedure is carried out, only the area which is operated will be numbed.
You may feel a flushing or warm sensation after the dye is injected. The catheter is removed after the test is performed. This may cause some mild discomfort.
Your heart will be monitored and examined throughout the procedure via electrocardiogram. An ECG records your heart rhythm and electrical activity. A number of electrodes are placed on arms, legs and chest to record each single heartbeat.
